The colorway is perfect for a baby, or a box of Kleenex, congratulations!

What pattern?

I just cast on.. some stitches and kept adding more until it looked as long as I thought a hat should look for a baby about 6 months old (the baby will be born this spring- and I wanted something for its first winter).. so, I ended up casting on 60 stitches and then knitted it about 4 inches in the round..
Then, I thought.. oh heck.. I should add another couple of rounds of knitting.. and then, I started decreasing.. I did it every 6th stitch.. but, shhh don't tell anyone.. at one point.. I must have miscounted (I did have to get up for some water and answer the phone one time) and one of the decreases was 8 stitches .. and was just a little wider than the others were.. but, you know what?

IT doesn't really show.. I didn't even notice it.. until I was almost finished.. and it's for a baby.. they'll be looking at how cute the sweet little thing is in his/her colorful warm wool hat w/ the green pompom on the top, right?
However, the decreases have a nice star pattern in red.. and the final row was the beginning of a color change.
Thanks everyone.. I'll work on the little mittens and get them finished up. I'll make some w/out the thumbs.. just little hand 'sacks' attached w/ strings to run through the baby's coat/etc.. so, the mittens won't be lost.

That is so cute. I love the colors, too!! Great job.
"It's a rare man who is taken for what he truly is," he said. "There is much misjudgment in the world. Now, I knew you for a unicorn when I first saw you, and I know that I am your friend. Yet you take me for a clown, or a clod, or a betrayer, and so must I be if you see me so. The magic on you is only magic and will vanish as soon as you are free, but the enchantment of error that you put on me I must wear forever in your eyes. We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream."
